Canon EOS 5D Mark III vs Nikon D800 noise!

This is the one you've been waiting for! The #Canon #5D3 vs the #Nikon #D800 noise levels compared across their entire sensitivity ranges! That's the page I've linked to below, but I have in fact completed and uploaded all of my Canon 5D Mark III main tests, so feel free to check out the other results pages too... Indeed I urge you to also look at the 5D3 vs D800 quality / resolution page as it tells the other half of the story.

So you'll see how the 5D3 compares to the D800, 5D2 and NEX-7 in terms of real-life resolution (including one against the D800 at its 'medium' setting) and against the D800 and 5D2 in terms of noise. I hope to add NEX-7 noise comparisons in the future.

As always, I shot everything in RAW+JPEG, but I'm holding back on my RAW comparisons until everything's settled down on the converter front. Adobe is still not final and Canon's own DPP is currently resolving issues. So I'm waiting for a short while on the RAW side of things.

But I think you'll find the JPEG comparisons I've made very revealing, and hopefully useful...

Let me know what you think!
